Opens a new empty View Window. A new view is given a temporary name of the form "noname00.pav", "noname01.pav".... After you have done some work on the new view, performing a Save or Save As will prompt you for a file name which will replace the temporary name once the save is complete.
Brings up a standard file open dialog so that an existing View File may be opened. A new View Window is created to hold the loaded view.
Open and Compile
Brings up a standard file open dialog so that an existing View File may be opened. Once the view file is opened, it is automatically compiled without having to launch compile from the file menu after opening the file.
Same as open and compile, with the exception that you would invoke switch if you currently had a view file opened and compiled. When the switch command is invoked, the program opens a "Switch View" dialog box, and prompts you to select a new view file to open. Once the file is selected and the "Open" button is pressed, MediaMatrix will mute the audio, close the currently running view file, open the new view file, and then automatically compile the new view file, and begin passing audio again.
Closes the currently running view file, and unloads the program, thus muting the audio.
Saves contents of the View Window with Input Focus into its associated View File. If view has not been previously saved, Save As is invoked so that you may associate a View File with the new view.
Brings up a standard file save dialog so that the contents of the View Window with Input Focus may be saved to a View File you specify. If the View File you specify does not exist, it will be created. If the file already exists, you will be alerted and given the opportunity to cancel the save.
If the view had already been associated with a View File, it will now be associated with the file you specify and the original file will remain unchanged. The title of the View Window will be changed to indicate the new View File association for the View Window.
Although you can only have one view file open, compiled ,and running at a time, you can open up multiple view files, copy and paste between them, and switch between them to change which view file is open and running.
When the "Save All" command is invoked, the system will save all currently open view files, not just the one compiled and running on the system. Be careful with this command, whenever you have multiple view files open. Use it only when you want to make changes to all view files.
This File Menu item is available only when a View Window has Input Focus.
Compiles the contents of the View Window with Input Focus thus making it the Active View.
This window shows progress during a compile and results once
the compile is complete.
The Compile Options are View File specific. When a View File is saved, these options are saved along with the View File on both the computer disk and the processor.
This item brings up the Print Dialog Box.
This item brings up the Printer Setup Dialog Box.
Closes MediaMatrix. The application may also be closed from the system menu of the main window. Both methods produce the same results.
If any View Windows have been modified but not saved, you will get one or more Close Confirmation Message Boxes.
The bottom 5 entries in the File Menu contain a list of the most recently edited view files. Selecting one of these items is equivalent to performing a File Open... and entering the file name. View file names are added to the history list when they are closed and are removed when they are opened again.
